If you read thru the message from NN there will be a Giovanni special research quest every month

Hope not same thing every month though

Purify 15 shadows take quite a lot of SD

Yes. There is a new achievement medal that count the number of times you defeat Giovanni.

I don't think I will do more than 1 since the rewards really sucks.

At least more interesting than normal grinding, shiny checks, whacking the same raid for one whole month lah

Good to combat boredom in the game.

And practice for PVP leagues next year.

Quite true. It forced me to do some power up of my mon in order to clear the team leader battles. That said, it's still a bit dependent on RNG to see when the opponent fires their charged move.

One YouTuber managed to clear Giovanni using great league mons only (1.5k CP mon).

Also having a smack down tyranitar is quite useful for some of the team leader battle. For those that missed out on cd, I don't know if rampardos or rhyperior with rock moves will be viable alternative.

You can always look for only Ralts, Dratini, Larvitar, Lapras and hope for 13.13.13 and above

But then SD cost is high

Not all Giovanni are built the same, it seems. Some Persians fast moves just kill your Machamp or Lucario faster than you can beat them. Weather also plays a part.

Suggest doing your Giovanni battle in cloudy weather so that your fighting type can get a boost. If it's partly cloudy, and Persian has normal fast move, it will ko you super fast.

Took me a lot of revives and potion to realize that. Because my main account with maxout Machamp breezes through Giovanni fairly easily but my other account also with maxout Machamp fight until finger pain also get pawned by Persian before able to dish out any charged move.

I've tons of SD so no issue on that. I just purified a Porygon so added another count to it.

I think among all the special research, this is by far the worst one.

Alternative strategy is to use your Rock type tyranitar/rhyperior first to charge up some energy against the Persian and also tank some hits before switching to your machamp/Lucario to finish off the Persian.

This might be a better strategy than waiting for right weather or finding the easier Giovanni.

The coiled and ready to strike might give out Zubat as well if you want to save some sd. Flying type grunt is quite rare it seems.

Is it me or is cobalion catch rate lower than normal. Had a lot fleeing from me even with consistent gb and excellent. Not that I want to catch it but just feel like it's harder to capture compared to previous raid boss.

Wonder if there will be an option to remove/cancel a Special Research? I cannot be bothered to complete this one...
